Have you ever given a pet a strange name? Why?

We had a cat we called Norman Bates, cause he was psychotic. We also had a cat we named Sidney, after the character in the movie "Scream",cause that's all she did. I now have a puppy named Maggie May, after the Rod Stewart song, and cause she was born in May. I'm interested to hear different names, and the stories behind them.

  • My grandmother had a dog named Sir FritzMarBill. Her name was Marlene and my grandpa was Bill. She also had a dog named MiPaAn, Meepsy for short. It is a combination of the first 2 letters of each of her children's names. Apparently she liked to cram everyone's names together. Lol.

  • Our cat's name is Kevin - I don't know why. Our fish's names are Sushi, Wasabi and Hoisin - because my kids have a rather odd sense of humor.
